Sunday Stamps! #278

Hello, and happy Sunday crafty friends. Today, I have a beachy card to share with you using the Paradise Palms bundle for this weeks new sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps!

I am still having fun playing with the Gentle Waves background stamp set and thought I would use it for my "deserted" island look. lol
I stamped the Gentle Waves "upside down" using Coastal Cabana ink and then went back over it using a Blending Brush with Pool Party and Coastal Cabana ink.

My deserted island was created using the Layering Diorama Dies with Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The palm trees were stamped twice using Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow ink and then pieced and together after being die cut.

My card follows this weeks new sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps! by Melissa.

This weeks challenge will end on Friday, March 18, 2022 at 6:00 pm EST.

To put most of the focus on my island, I kept my sky clean and stamped a solo sun using Mango Melody ink.
I added a fun "beachy" border to the bottom of my card using the Palms Dies with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock followed by some Linen Thread over the top of it. 

Lastly, I added a few Faux Sea Glass Shapes that matched my water perfectly.
